| p.181 #17 · What is your most recent (alt) lens purchase? |
I went to my aunt's memorial service last Thursday and found myself inheriting her photo gear. Not quite a purchase so it might not belong here, but it was an acquisition.
My aunt was a lifelong photographer, and a very keen one. My siblings and cousins and I all remember her with one of her camera - she always had a camera with her.
I left that night with her two Nikkormats, Nikkor 50/1.8, Canon FTb, FL 50/1.8, FD 135mm f/3.5, Nikon LF35AF compact, and many filters all packed up in her Leica camera bag. A lot of the filters were 48mm, which seemed like an odd size. I've been using her lenses some on my NEX-5R with an adapter (the alt connection), but I think I'll have to put a roll of film through one of those bodies at some point. I'm open to recommendations for a nice low ISO (25-200?) film. My only experience with film has been the 110 camera I had as a kid and some disposables.
I only developed an interest in photography over the last few years. She didn't spend much time online and didn't seem much of what I've been doing. I wish I had been able to talk with her about photography and get her thoughts as I've improved.
Rest in peace, Maralyn.
